Waiting...

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Today is my due date... and so far no sign of baby. Every once and a while I think I feel a contraction, then I wonder if it was just something I ate... Pregnancy really took it's toll on me over the last week, and I have been feeling very achy and tired. Today I managed to take Oliver for a walk all the way around the block, do some cleaning, get dinner in the slow cooker, and ship off an order.  I also did a bit of sewing for the baby! I'm trying to keep myself occupied as much as possible to make the time go by a little faster.


I think I've done everything I can possibly do to prepare for the baby's arrival... I've washed the diapers half a dozen times, pre-washed most of the clothes, practiced putting on my maya wrap, packed/unpacked/repacked the hospital bags, done prenatal yoga, etc, etc... I never, ever in my life thought I'd be looking forward to excruciating labour, but seriously, this waiting is killing me!!! The other day, I realized that (because of the miscarriage in September) I've only spent 3 of the last 16 months NOT pregnant.  I feel like I've done pregnancy... I'm practically a pregnancy expert now (kidding!). I'm ready to see what this next part is all about (not to mention the fact that my back and hips are so sore). 

Anyway, enough complaining about my aches and pains... Today I made a couple little sweatshirts for baby. I'm obsessed with these patterns from Brindille & Twig. The Sweatshirt pattern is my favourite though. They are so quick and easy to sew up, and are a great way to make use of smaller scraps of knit fabric.



I used this pattern once already to make a black and red floral top. Today I made another in floral, but with chevron knit banding, and one in black and white knit with a lace applique.  I'm hoping these will be easy to put on and comfortable for the babe.  Now if only she'd hurry up and get here!!

  2. They are so adorable! Good luck with everything! As uncomfortable and unwell that I was with all my pregnancies, the last few weeks were always my favourite. The waiting was...well waiting...but so very exciting, with so much delicious and nervous anticipation for the next step...and of course finally meeting bubs.

  8. Good luck :-) I hope you don't have long to wait. Both of mine were, 10 and 14 days respectively so I fully understand what the waiting is like. And I really like those patterns they've got some great designs, I may have to give one a try :-)

  9. Bonjour, in France we say that baby is waiting for the next "full moon". So if you have not 9 full moons in pregnancy, baby will not arrive. But it seems she will go soon as you are dynamic And active all around the home and garden. Good luck.
